Our guest today is Je Yon Jung, senior counsel at May Lightfoot.

Je Yon has more than two decades of legal experience, including work in consumer protection, civil rights, discrimination, and financial services. What all of this diverse work has in common is a dedication to serving communities that have been left out or abused by the legal and justice systems.

Je Yon emigrated to the United States with her family as a small child. From her earliest memories, she was certain that she wanted to be a lawyer. Though the patriarchal tradition of Korean culture left her with little support for this ambition, Je Yon's determination landed her in the Department of Justice only one year out of law school. Her work has now branched into the mass tort space with the complex and ongoing Zantac litigation.

In this interview, we'll discuss how Rodney King changed the trajectory of Je Yon's career, the value of friendships, and how she came to know so much about soccer.
